Replacing my old Polk Sub with a SVS-pb10nsb years ago was one one the most dramatic audio upgrades I made. Adding a second this year was definitely another. It evened out the bass response in my...

When you say filter are you referring to color mode? I didn't think the 4910 had any additional filters.

I'd keep the X55. If I recall, the rs40, 50, and 60 had the older lamp design and even with the "flapper" version, that lamp was never very good. Also those were the first year of the new chassis...

You might be right. It's hard to give up the idea of towers, but that's more in my head. The bookshelves would just need a really secure stand at the right height, which I am sure I can either find...

I'd think you could go at least 100"

I sit 10ft from 100" and could stand sitting closer or having a bigger screen if space allowed.
